    Johnny in a fascinator would definitely be worth seeing!

    It would be Instagrammed to death. I await his pictures with my hands clasped together in glee and may be squealing at my computer right now.

    It seems like NBC is really branding them in the hopes that their coverage for Pyenogchang will be a major piece of the network's 2018 Olympic coverage. Good for them and I think they're good for skating.

    I want the Derby coverage to be about the horse and not fashion.

    Oh please. the Derby has always been about fashion and food and drink. The horse race is secondary to the event. I think this is going to be a hoot. And I have to admire Johnny and Tara's publicists....they're sure getting some exposure.

    Well at least Johnny knows something about horses, having competed when he was younger. He's sure to give us some interesting tidbits (I hope).

    I was not aware that Johnny had done that. That's pretty cool.

    Johnny may know a lot about horses, but I'm not sure how much he knows about thoroughbred horse racing. There's a world of difference between equestrian (which Johnny did) and "The Sport of Kings".

    Just pick up a copy of The Racing Form and you will see an array of data that makes a skating protocol look like ABCs in comparison.

    Johnny and Tara are turning into the king and queen of camp.

    Tara had a horse when she was a kid too. I can't wait to see the Derby coverage this year!

    I really wonder how far they'll take this. They have a good shot at being the next Dick and Peggy, but more than that, they seem to be branching off into entertainment/Hollywood in general. I just can't see 2 figure skaters being regular fashion correspondents, but then again look at Kelly Osbourne and her unlikely entry into the fashion commentating world lol
